Barça reveals the figures of the operation Lewandowski, officially blaugrana

FC Barcelona formalized this Tuesday the signing of Robert Lewandowski for the next four seasons. The Catalan club took the opportunity to confirm the amount of his release clause and the date of his debut with the first team.

Arriving in Miami, Florida, Robert Lewandowski completed the final details of his transfer to Barcelona. On the eve of the preseason match against Inter Miami, Barça formalized the signing of the Polish striker until June 2026, i.e. for the next four seasons.

Above all, the Blaugrana club publicly revealed via a press release the financial details of the agreement to snatch it from Bayern Munich during the summer transfer window. As indicated by leaks in the press for several days, the club of president Joan Laporta will pay 45 million euros to the Bavarian entity. An amount to which may be added an additional 5 million euros in the form of bonuses.

A €500m release clause

Since Neymar’s departure for PSG in 2017, Barça has become accustomed to setting dissuasive release clauses in the contracts of its stars. Unsurprisingly, that of Robert Lewandowski is high and reaches 500 million euros. A significant amount for a player who will turn 34 on August 21.

It now remains to see the Pole start in his new colors. If Robert Lewandowski went to the United States as soon as an agreement in principle between Barça and Bayern was announced during the weekend, the European golden shoe had his medical examination on Monday in Florida.

Debut against Real Madrid?

However, according to information from the Catalan press, the new star of the Barcelona team should not face Inter Miami on Wednesday.

Before starting under the orders of Xavi, Robert Lewandowski is therefore likely to wait for Barça’s next friendly match, Sunday in Las Vegas, against Real Madrid. What better than a Clasico to launch his adventure with the blaugrana club? And if in addition the Pole started with a goal against the sworn enemy of the Catalans, the supporters of Barça would already be under the spell.
